6:01am
mill road west of the bw parkway. also up in burtonsville, route 198 west of route 29. other than that we're just finding the volume now forming coming in from the west on the inbound side of 66. manassas into centreville. toll road looks great. sterling, herndon, reston all the way through tysons as well. you'll be just final. let's take a live -- just fine. let's take a live look outside. here on the beltway in college park, no issues till you get to 95. then of course it slows down a bit approaching university boulevard. no problems right now, though, as you head past that into bethesda. let's go back over to our maps. this time we'll head over to the inside of the beltway. 395 is beginning to slow down just a bit around landmark. no problems across the 14th street bridge. we're looking good on the 11th street bridge as well. a quick look in northeast, new york avenue here at bladensburg road. i'll be back with more traffic coming up at 6:11. today the washington nationals host the st. louis cardinals in game three of the national league division series. >> let's go, nats.
6:02am
this is the first major league baseball post-season game to come to the district in nearly eight decades. how do you like that? kristin fisher joins us live. she is on the field at the beautiful nats park. good morning, kristin. >> reporter: good morning. if only i could just stay here, right? we're just seven hours away from the start of the first post-season game ever here at nats park. if you are one of the fans lucky enough to be coming down here, you know you've got to be rocking the red, right? if you do, look at this. this is a brand new shirt that has just come out. eight going to go on sale at 10:30 this morning. so come on down, pick it up. there's going to be lots of other post-season merchandise on sale that we haven't even seen yet. so it should be some good stuff. now, i want to go over some logistics for all you guys. it's going to be absolutely insane here. i want to make sure if you are coming, you know what to do, where to go, when things open, that sort of stuff. the most important thing that everybody here is telling me is make sure you bring the right
6:03am
ticket. it sounds silly but the ticket you need to bring says nlds home game one. there's some confusion because this is game three. there's a concern people might be bringing game three tickets. don't do that. check your ticket very well. make sure you bring nlds home game 1. gates open at nats park at 10:30 this morning. two and a half hours prior to game time. the box office will be opening an hour and a half earlier at 9:00 a.m. this is important, people, because if you still want to come to this game, you can still come. there are a limited quantity of standing room only tickets still available but you can only get them at 9:00 when the box office opens. so come on down. get here early. we'll be out there. we'll probably try to interview you while you're in line. it's just such an exciting day. there's nobody here yet and you can already feel the energy. there are folks making sure the field is ready, the seats are
6:04am
clean. they're hosing down the dugout. lots of activity here even though we're still a ways away. several hours away from the first pitch. one more thing. when you get here and gates open at 10:30, they're going to have something a bit different than during the regular season. for instance, they're going to have live music taking place. the miller light scoreboard walk once the gates open. 30,000 fans are going to be receiving promotional items at each post-season game. they'll likely be distributed at all the gates. then there's stuff for the kids. face painting, balloon art, caricatures. there's going to be a lot of activity out here. it's just so neat to be standing out here on the field where our boys are going to be playing in just a few short hours. i'm so excited. my natitude has ignited. how about you? you coming to the game? >> we're going to try to get tickets. it's not easy. >> all right, kristin. just a few hours away. 6:05 now.
6:05am
in less than a month, all of the americans will be headed to the polls, at least those that are registered to vote for president. >> astaire a mergener -- as tara mergener reports, voters in ohio will probably decide who wins. >> reporter: mitt romney and his supporters have a new message for president obama. romney has three more campaign stops in ohio today for a very good reason. no republican has won the presidency without carrying ohio. >> i want you to go out there and find someone who voted for barack obama and get him to come join our team. >> reporter: romney's ohio poll numbers are surging as more voters are connecting. >> this country is a country of equal opportunity. i think that everybody has an equal chance to succeed and i think romney kind of is for that. >> reporter: president obama is back in washington today.
6:06am
his election staff is still in ohio. the obama campaign has 1 ten field offices -- 120 field offices spread across the pivotal state. in columbus the president reminded voters which candidate supported the industry bailout. >> we invented a dying auto industry that supports one in eight ohio jobs and has come roaring back to the top of the world. >> reporter: ohio senior citizen bill todd believes the president has earned another four years in the white house. >> he's got my vote because four years ago the country was in bad shape. he's done everything he possibly could from the day he went in office. >> reporter: romney is spending four of the next five days in ohio. the president is also certain to be back during the final weeks of this very tight race. tara mergener for cbs news, washington. tomorrow it will be vice president joe biden and romney's running mate paul ryan squaring off in their only debate before election day. here to talk about what each man has to do and not do is the
6:07am
white house correspondent for "u.s.a. today." good to have you back with us. before we started our interview, you said the obama administration has to stop the bloodletting or as you said bedwetting. that's the onerous on joe biden tomorrow because the president's performance was not good. >> it wasn't good. not that mitt romney beat president obama -- i'm not sure if he did, but barack obama did not look good last week. what vice president biden has to do is stop the bleeding. >> what does paul ryan need to do to keep the momentum going that mitt romney accelerated last week? >> both these candidates are really smart guys that know washington, know how buckets work. -- budgets work. that's what paul ryan's specialty is. he has to show his expertise. this is a great opportunity for
6:08am
him to introduce himself to the american people again and to show take he's somebody that we can credibly believe is one heart beat away frbing president -- from being president. >> we don't vote for vice president. we do vote for them but you know what i'm saying. that's not why you go to the polls and elect the top of the ticket. does the debate really mean that much in the long run? >> typically these debates are memorable for gaffes and faults. >> joe biden has provided us many. >> but he's a great debater. he was fantastic four years ago and walk add fine line against a candidate that was considered to be a lightweight. so he had to show that he was one, a heavy which he was but not crush her. he did both of those things. he backed up the president's positions. it was a little easier position than he is in now, but this is a guy that knows what he's doing. >> paul ryan has to talk to us
6:09am
in normal terms because he's been accused of being very wonkish on his fiscal policy. >> right. i can't explain how the tax cut works for you in five minutes. you better look it up. he's going to have to do better than that. >> we'll be watching and so will you be watching. and aamer, beginning at 9:00 a.m., "u.s.a. today" reporters will be live blogging tomorrow about what the candidates say. you can see that live via our website wusa9.com. we will also have live streaming of the debate on our website. make sure your television is tuned to channel 9 to watch the debate which starts at 9:00 p.m. tomorrow. then log on to wusa9.com. at 11:00, join derek mcginty and anita brikman as they fact check what the candidates say with the "u.s.a. today" fact checking team. that's all thursday night. we'll be right back. howard is up next with the forecast.

6:17am
there's the front but comes through as a thin line of cloudiness at about 6:00, 7:00. behind it the winds kick up northwesterly. so a little bit breezy and certainly cooler or chillier tonight than what we're dealing with this morning. 71 this afternoon. we'll turn sunny. going to be a nice day. tonight mid-40s in town. mid- to upper 30s north and west. in our far western mountains in toward west virginia, we've got a freeze watch out for tonight. cool tomorrow, 64. friday 66 with maybe a couple of clouds in the afternoon. saturday looks nice, upper 60s. how about sunday? going up to baltimore or fed ex field for the football games, looking good. mid- to upper 70s. monday and tuesday depends on what happens along the coast. chance of showers later monday into tuesday. 6:17. here comes monika with timesaver traffic. you put a little sweater on i see. >> it's a little chilly in here. southbound bw parkway on the ramp to powder mill road. two separate accidents. crews are there. it may slow you down as you head southbound on the bw parkway approaching powder mill road. although it's on the ramp it
6:18am
may still slow you down on the bw parkway itself. 270 looks great. no issues as you travel out of frederick down toward clarksburg. we'll take a live look outside and show what you it looks like on the beltway in college park. no irks to report as cow -- issues to report as you come around the bend to silver spring. this time into virginia. northbound 95 no issues at all from woodbridge into spring field. just a bit slow there. we'll take a live look and as i said, just the brake lights forming here at route 644. a quick look at one more graphic if you're going to the nats game today. you might just want to consider metro. navy yard has two entrances. but metro is suggesting that you use the blue and orange line to capitol south station. i'll be back with more traffic coming up at 6:25. back to you guys. >> all right. it is 6:18. time for the question of the morning. >> are you hungry? 3% of americans according to "u.s.a. today" admit to eating in one of these places. it's just 3%. a reminder here. 3% eating on the floor, a, b, in the tub, or c, in the bed. >> rihanna booker likes eating

6:23am
reportedly been cleared to practice. now, this doesn't guarantee that he'll be able to play sunday against minnesota, but it is of course a very good sign. rg3 will participate in noncontact drills and be evaluated all week long. only a couple of players on the nationals roster have actual playoff experience. several of the young guys say players like jason werth around adam la roche and today's starting pitcher edwin jackson have been a wealth of knowledge before and during the post season. now they hope that experience pays off with jackson on the mound. the nationals were all smiles yesterday in a voluntary practice. monday night's crushing loss by st. louis 150e78d just like a distant -- seemed just like a distant memory. now the club is focused on giving fans a victory. >> i think the fans, you know, when they have a team to root for and a team that has a chance to be a winner every year, it's a lot more exciting for them. like i said, they've been
6:24am
through a lot, a lot with this organization. >> it's fun. these guys are enjoying it. it's a fun time for them. it's not a stressful time. it's what we want to be. >> again edwin jackson gets the start today. first pitch is at 1:07. i'll have live reports from nationals park all day starting at noon. that's a quick look at sports this morning. i'm kristen berset. have a great wednesday. >> thank you so much, kristen. here's a look at traffic on 95 at route 32. things look great. an accident route 332 in the left lane, southbound bw parkway ramp to powder mill road, two separate accidents. i'll have more on traffic coming up at 6:30. you're watching 9news now. stay with us.

6:32am
kristin fisher is right there in nats park with more on today's game. good morning. >> reporter: good morning. just simply a fact that we're having this post-game -- post- season game here at nats park, such a huge deal when you think about it. the last time this city had a post-season baseball game was back in 1933. prohibition had just ended. there was no such thing as sz. and the average -- as social security and the average cost of a home just $6,000. it's pretty amazing. joining me now chief operating officer of the washington nationals andy feffer. when you look back at how long this has been, 79 years. is it hard to believe that you're here today? >> it's amazing. i look out on the field and sow the post-season logos. the franchise is only 7 years old. who thought at the beginning of the year we would be talking post-season baseball for the first time. >> reporter: everywhere you look you see the hash tag post-
6:33am
season natitude. talk about how the fans and the media have embraced this young team and it's taken off. >> october natitude starts here. our players inspired it with their play. the fans adopted it. there's this energy and vibe you feel not just the ballpark but in washington. a community that has rallied around the team. in the middle of the election and politics and contention there, everybody in washington is together on the nationals. >> reporter: as we stand here on the field, it's so quiet but you can still almost feel the excitement building. can you put into words what this moment means for you personally and the team? >> i've been in sports for almost 25 years. this is the first time i've even been near the post-season to have a team do that. i think as a washingtonian myself, the fact that the city of washington has a baseball team, we didn't have one for 30 years till seven years ago. now we're in the post season. it's a pretty special moment for everyone from washington to
6:34am
celebrate it as a group. let's support the nats and we're not done yet. we're just getting started in the post season. i always like to say anything can happen in october. >> reporter: anything can ppen. thank you so much. appreciate t. bryce harper was quoted in the post back in june as saying one of the things he loved about this team, this city, the fans, how much he felt like he belonged here and really just loved being a part of this city. so everybody out there, if you're coming to this game, hang on. hang o. here we go. if you're coming to this game, rock the red. gates open 10:30. hope to see you there. also standing room only tickets. 9:00 a.m. limited quantity going on sale. you can only pick them up at the box office. back to you guys. >> kristin, thank you. here's a fan the nats can do without. the f.b.i. wants you to take a good look at the man in this surveillance photo. he's wanted for robbing a td bank on connecticut avenue on friday. police say he handed the teller a note demanding money.
6:35am
then took off in a cab. the man was last seen wearing a dark suit and tie and dark nationals baseball hat and sunglasses. former d.c. council chair kwame brown is in more trouble this morning. he's been placed under a curfew in order to make weekly visits with court officials. this order came yesterday after brown failed to make three required phone calls. he resigned as you remember last june after pleading guilty to bank fraud and a misdemeanor campaign finance violation. an angry judge richard leon told brown he's not putting himself in the best position ahead of his sentencing and warned him not to, quote, tempt fate. howard brooks should learn his fate later today. brooks was the former campaign consultant to d.c. mayor vincent gray who admitted to secretly funneling money to former candidate suleman brown. it was all part after campaign designed to improve gray's chances when it came to the election. the 64-year-old brooks pleaded guilty to obstruction of justice last may. officers suspected foul
6:36am
play almost from the beginning. now a reporter's death has been ruled murder and they're looking for her killer. sarah libby greenhalgh was found dead in her burning home in july. we learned yesterday she died from a gunshot wound to her neck. she worked for the winchester star. lawyers for jerry sandusky say they plan to appeal his lengthy sentence on child sex abuse charges. several of sandusky's victims were in a pennsylvania courtroom tuesday when a judge sentenced sandusky to at least 30 years behind bars. the former penn state assistant football coach will be 98 years old before he can even be considered for parole. >> key have imposed a sentence of many centuries. there's really no point to it. he impose add life sentence. >> before sentencing, sandusky addressed the judge and maintained his innocence. he will now undergo psychological and medical exams before he's assigned to prison. get this. airline screeners in japan let a guy armed to the teeth board
6:37am
a plane to los angeles. the guy walked off the plane into lax wearing a trench coat. underneath that trench coat bulletproof body armor, flame retardant pants. so then authorities said probably should check his luggage. when they did that they found a hatchet, knives, smoke grenade, three billy clubs, even a biohazards suit. >> what are they saying in japan? another high powered executive is feeling the heat for chopping down trees overlooking the c&o canal on the potomac. lockheed's c.e.o. robert stevens admits he cleared 25,000 square feet of trees located when the prestigious merry go round enclave off river road. redskin owner dan snyder also ran into trouble for cutting down trees without permission. he lives up the street from stevens. a lawyer for stevens says he had the woods thinned out because last june's derecho caused so much damage on his property. the executive says he paid
6:38am
$1,000 fine and is working closely with montgomery county authorities to restore the land to its natural beauty. time right now 16:38. i'm -- is 6:38. i'm jessica doyle. i'm watching your money and holiday shopping. just 75 days till christmas. you done yet? a lot of people actually are not waiting to find a deal this year. joining us now with more is tray from retail me notes. insider magazine. tray, what's going on? people are shopping super early this year. >> you know, it's really interesting. we conducted a poll of consumer affairs and found that 40% of people are starting their shopping before november. so what this is creating is an extended holiday shopping period that we've actually coined octonovdec. >> i love it but i also love a bargain and a deal. you know some ways to get some. tell us. >> absolutely. first of all i urge customers before making a purchase to do a little due dill generally.
6:39am
